Fishing in Kamchatka
Kamchatka is a region that is often referred to as the “Russian end of the world”. This peninsula, located in the Asian part of Russia, has an area slightly larger than that of Poland (about 370 thousand km2), and is inhabited by only around 470 thousand people (of which over 200 thousand are concentrated around the largest city in the region, i.e. Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky).
This picturesque land, covered with dense stretches of green tundra intersected by rivers and dotted with numerous volcano craters (reaching up to five thousand metres above sea level) is a mecca for wildlife. It is safe to say that Kamchatka is one of the last places on Earth where nature still rules, and when travelling through it, one is much more likely to meet a bear than a human. Its crystal clear rivers are famous for their abundance of Pacific salmon – the fish swim into Kamchatka’s rivers from the Sea of Okhotsk to spawn. The area of the peninsula is a dream come true for anglers who love extreme fishing and want to catch the specimen of their lives.Czytaj więcej
Fish of Kamchatka, or what you can catch
What is the secret of fishing trips to Kamchatka? Above all, the abundance of fish, because the local wild rivers are a real paradise for any angler. Kamchatka is famous for Pacific salmon. As many as five species can be found here: Chinook, coho, chum, pink and sockeye salmon. Kamchatka fisheries are also famous for large rainbow trout (called mykizha by the locals), colourful Dolly Varden trout (Salvelinus malma) and big whitespotted char (called kundja), which are the boast of the best anglers (specimens measuring 70-80 cm are not uncommon). It is a good place to fish for char; occasionally, anglers catch rainbow trout.
Unforgettable fishing in Kamchatka will meet the expectations of even the most demanding enthusiast. Here, you certainly won’t spend long hours waiting for a fish. Huge specimens weighing 3 to 4 kilograms are not uncommon. Prefer traditional spinning? Or maybe you prefer fly lures or mouse flies (ideal for places that are adjacent to eroded shorelines)? We’ve got you covered. Our fishing trips to Kamchatka offer plenty of attractive spots for various fishing styles. We will go up and down the rivers and our guide will choose the fisheries with the greatest potential and advise you on the perfect lures.
Fishing in Kamchatka – what about the availability of fisheries?
You can fish from the shore or wade in the water. Fishing in Kamchatka, however, requires boats and pontoons to reach the best spots abounding in huge salmon, trout and other species of fish. During our trips, we ensure efficient and reliable equipment which will take us to our destination.
Salmon is best caught by spinning with a spinner or an artificial fly. Salmon and char can be taken from the fishery for meat or caviar. It is forbidden to take kundjas and rainbow trout (you can photograph the specimens you catch). We will provide all anglers who book our expedition in advance with detailed information on the limits, restrictions and regulations that apply to fishing in Kamchatka in a given period. We will also advise you on the equipment you should take, and after the trip, we will give you a film from the expedition as a souvenir.
